Why hire a self storage unit for your musical instrument?

If you are in a band or orchestra, or you’re just looking to store your personal instrument, it may be worth hiring a self-storage facility. Musical instruments can be damaged extremely easily; therefore, maintaining their condition is important. There are also a variety of other reasons why you may wish to store your musical instrument and equipment.

1. To be passed down

The cost of purchasing an instrument is an expensive purchase and is often bought as an investment. Instruments are usually passed down for generations; however, this is only possible if the instrument has received the correct care over its lifetime. If it is kept in the home, there are many ways that it could get damaged. A self-storage facility keeps your instrument safe and secure in a locked, individual unit.

2. A small home

If you live in a small home, an instrument can take up a great deal of valuable space. Instruments such as drums, trombones and cellos are larger in size and, when they’re not in use, it can be difficult to know where to keep them. A self-storage unit is a fantastic flexible option that lets you have access to your possessions whenever required and then put them back into storage immediately after use.

3. Temperature issues

If you live in a location that fluctuates in temperature or suffers humidity problems, hiring a self-storage unit is crucial for the longevity of your instrument. If the piece is kept in the wrong conditions, it may be at risk of shrinking, drying out or breaking apart. A self-storage unit features managed temperature control to avoid any of these risks.

4. In a band

If you are in a band, it is easier if all instruments are located together, so that the transportation to gigs is much easier to manage. Self storage would be the ideal solution to avoid losing essential equipment. If you perform for a living, hiring a secure, controlled unit to keep these belongings secure may give your band some peace of mind. Your equipment will be in the right hands for as long as you need.

A Quick and Easy Process

Quick and easy to reserve and simple sign up process when I arrived. I had under estimated my load size and needed more space which the guys on site quickly arranged for me. Very helpful and friendly staff. A recommended company

Same Day Move In

Fantastic experience. Needed storage quickly and the staff were on hand to help get everything sorted as fast as possible – was in the same day. They even helped to make sure I got the right size unit so I didn’t over pay – they could have sold me a far bigger one but wanted to make sure I got the best deal and was happy – that doesn’t happen very often! Well Done!

Extremely Helpful Staff

Extremely helpful staff, talked me through everything, gave me a tour of the facility, the sign up process was very straight forward, and most important excellent value for money.

Trolleys and Good Lighting

Great storage with lots of trolleys and good lighting. Lots of parking bays so it is easy to park close to the storage unit entrance. A friendly and helpful team (Anthony and Nick) that get back to you quickly by email or phone.

Business Self Storage

Can’t praise the guys enough, Tricia initially found me a unit over year ago and patiently kept me up to date on availability as I was unable to move my business as quickly as I’d hoped. All the staff are friendly and helpful. A safe and clean place to work.
